The community jumped all over us when
we suggested IE be used until the XSLT problem was resolved with the web
site. Although this graph is meant for developers, it seems reasonable
to expect some people from the community will want to take a look at it
as well. Where possible I think we should do page transformations on the
back-end to avoid specific browser requirements.
Jeff - Is there a way to generate this
graph on the back-end and just send an image to the browser?
SVG graphics were recently added to the API Progress Reports (kudos to
Jeffrey Liu). These display nicely in Internet Explorer, but you have to
do some work to make them display in Mozilla Firefox, and the result is
not good. My recommendation is to use IE until the Mozilla support is ready
for prime time.
1. Download the special binary build of Firefox that contains the SVG support.
2. Perform a magic incantation to enable SVG support.
3. The result is passable but not as good as in IE due to the current incomplete
state of the support.
If this seems like an irresistable challenge to you, read on.
SVG is not included in the normal Firefox builds. You have to download
a special SVG binary from the SVG page . I downloaded the Windows XP
GDI+ build . Unzip this and look for firefox.exe in the bin directory.
Next you have to enable svg support. This is proclaimed in the notice:
There has recently been an important change to SVG enabled builds. SVG
enabled builds now require you to set
the 'svg.enabled' pref to 'true' before they
will render SVG.
There is probably some prefs file you can edit. However, there is a slick
way to do this via the browser :
1. Open the magic URL about:config
2. Filter the listing with svg and look at the line that contains svg.enabled
3. This preference is false by default. Double click it to set it to true
Your're now ready to view SVG. For example  displays like this in IE:
